Abstract

Between April and June 2005 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at Hunts Grove, Quedgeley, Gloucestershire (NGR SO 8106 1220). The work was commissioned by CgMs Consulting on behalf of Crest Strategic Projects Ltd. The evaluation revealed two main foci of late prehistoric and Roman activity. The main focus was a double ditched enclosure and associated field system, located towards the east of the site. The enclosure formed a probable farmstead which dated from the mid-late Iron Age but continued in use to the end of the Roman period. An associated burial, probably dated to the Iron Age, and an undated cremation were also revealed. Iron Age and mid-late Romano-British ditches were revealed towards the west of the site. The ditches may have marked the eastern limits of a settlement to the west, beyond the limits of the evaluation. Also present were a large number of mainly undated ditches and gullies, the remnants of agricultural field systems possibly associated with the farmsteads. Undated pits and postholes were also revealed.
